Authors: Mike Lewis
Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in the wrong life?

Mike Lewis had the ‘perfect’ job, with one small flaw – it wasn’t what he wanted. As he struggled to find his path, he realised that he wasn’t alone in this search, so he founded When to Jump, a thriving community of people sharing stories of their bold ‘jumps’ and supporting each other through the stresses of change. His inspirational new book lays out the ‘jump curve’, a four-step process for pursuing your dream.

Life is short – find out how to live to your true potential from someone who’s found his own.

Mike will be in conversation with Dawn Metcalfe.
